The end of an era indeed. I was on a business trip and spent a couple hours in my hotel room watching specials on his life and legislative efforts. There were many things about both I hadn't known. "Lion of the Senate" is such an accurate way to describe him. At 34, I've never lived in a world in which Ted Kennedy was not a Senator, but it wasn't until the last few days that I fully appreciated how much he'd done as one. I knew he was a great leader, and I knew about many of his accomplishments, but not all. Taken as a whole, it marks him as the kind of statesman that comes along maybe once in a generation. Maybe less.
Life is the misery we endure between disappointments.
